MAIN ARTICLE 

Traveling along a rail trail provides a relaxing “stay-cation,” offering new scenery, recreation and the opportunity to unwind without the need to drive or fly to a distant spot. Here are just a few rail trails to visit:

The Minuteman Bikeway, in Massachusetts, winds along 10 urban miles where the American Revolution began in April 1775; historical markers unravel the tale.

Withlacoochee State Trail, in central Florida, travels 46 paved miles through wildlife management areas, a state forest and small towns with citrus stands. At Istachatta, you can buy jumbo boiled peanuts at a general store that was once a whistlestop hotel.



The Katy Trail traverses Missouri on the old Missouri-Kansas-Texas rail line, stringing together river bluffs, Lewis and Clark history, rural landscapes, prairies, wetlands and forests.

Paul Bunyan State Trail, in Minnesota, is a 110-mile trail, with 57 paved miles. It travels past 21 of the state’s 10,000 lakes and visits pine forests, wetlands and communities.
